From the manufaturers website:
http://www.vlsi.fi/vs1000/vs1000.shtml
"VS1000 is a single-chip Ogg Vorbis (license-free audio codec) player. VS1000 contains a high-performance low-power DSP core VS_DSP4, Nand Flash interface, Full Speed USB port, general purpose I/O pins, SPI, UART, as well as a high-quality variable-sample-rate stereo DAC, and an earphone amplifier and a common voltage buffer. The device also features internal voltage regulators and voltage monitor. VS1000 can be powered from one supply voltage."

So now you have no excuse, get out there and build that Ogg-Vorb player! Only $10 for the chip.

How long do you all think it will be before we get a descent Ogg player or is it already too late, and MP3s have it locked up?
